Your birds are lovely! Great photos...you did get a dump of snow! Wow...so glad you are enjoying it..but stay cozy.

Lynn said...

Happy winter days to you also, Lynne. May you have a wonder filled week.

Your snowscape could be right outside my door! And what fantastic shots of your red polls... we get lots here too... is that niger seed you are feeding them, and what kind of mesh "sock" is that... nosy me, but it looks intriguing, I used niger seed one year and none of the birds ate it! Thanks for joining in on the final No Winter Whining, I have been so pleased to have met you through it! Cheers~

Pamela Gordon said...

Beautiful photos Lynn. I was having up to 30 or more red polls at my feeder before I came out here. They are so sweet and fun to watch aren't they? Do you still have a lot of snow?

Hello Lynne:
The images of the birds at the feeder are simply wonderful. We are sure that they must be grateful for anything which people are kind enough to put out in these very wintry conditions.

Lynne, you already know I love your Redpolls. I am so envious now but so happy for you. I know you have been waiting for the Redpolls to show up. Finally, Yes! Beautiful snow scenes and wonderful shots of the Redpolls. Have a happy day!

Such pretty sights

Jenny Woolf said...

Ah! I could just imagine seeing those birds clustered round the feeder, swaying in the wind. A bit magical. Thanks for this nice post.

Barb said...

The red polls are awesome. Hope to see some today during our visit!

Chatty Crone said...

Okay that was a LOT of snow and I am surprised to see the beautiful birds hanging out there.

Pondside said...

What a beautiful sight that must have been! Put out the seed, and they will come!

Dear Lynne, Beautiful, beautiful! You are a generous caretaker of the birds, and they show their appreciation by their visits! Still loving winter...thank you for sharing. Love, Penny

Diane said...

Amazing bird pics! And you are right-- winter can be very quiet; unlike the other seasons. Very peaceful.

PlantPostings said...

Gorgeous shots of the birds--that's an interesting type of feeder. It always amazes me how some birds and animals stick around and seem to thrive in the cold climate. Now it's time to think spring (even though it's still a few weeks off)!

Missy George said...

Great pictures Lynne..So serene..Happy Winter..:)

Gail said...

What wonderful winter pictures. Makes me want snow...just a little.

Linnae said...

Seeing all those birds would have made me happy, too! Thanks for sharing.

Loredana Donovan said...

Looks like you got a lot of snow! Pretty finches, they love your bird feeder, how nice you take care of them. Great post! :)

Oh Lynne, the snow is simply beautiful. :) And the birds. Our have very little color here in Southern California..sometimes the little males do..and of course the Humming Birds.
Such beautiful photo's! OH for a good camera!

Jen @ Muddy Boot Dreams said...

Thanks so much for joining in the No winter whining series...we so enjoyed meeting you.
